Dealing with extraction sockets
Following tooth extraction, the maintenance of the original bone volume is paramount. But what parameters need to be considered?
The healing process of post-extraction sockets is related to a series of biological events, including the formation of a coagulum replaced over time by a provisional connective tissue matrix, woven bone and lamellar bone and bone marrow. The development of the alveolar process is directly related to the presence of the natural dentition, and it follows different degrees of atrophy after tooth extraction.
